Company Culture

Company has 90 percent turn over rate with their managers. They treat them like dog crap. They only work with you if it benifits them. They dont care about you and your health.

Work-Life Balance

No such thing as work life balance. Working 18 plus more hours a day for weeks on end.

Suggestions for improvement

  • This company truly needs a union.

What I like about the company

Benifits

What I dislike about the company

Everything else.

Company Culture

It was a horrible company to work for. Employees and management was given unfair expectations and forced to work off the clock in order to get things done.

Support from management

Corporate wasn't supportive whatsoever E

Gender Equality

It depended on who the manager was.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Every employee is required to do grueling work under garbage conditions.

Career Development

Management limited opportunities.

Overall compensation for your work

Not paid enough for stress given.

Office / Work Environment

Didn't fix issues in a timely manner.

Environmental Friendliness

Limited time cleaning environment

Company Image

It's an embarrassment that I worked there.

Too difficult expectations to deal with

Handicapped Accessibility

Only thing that was decent.

Workplace Safety

Cameras were used but employees didn't care enough.

It was horrible how we were given unfair expectations.

Opinions aren't freely allowed with corporate

I don't have any unfortunately. I dreaded going to work every day.

Every part. The overall expectations corporate had for employees were unfair and just ridiculous.

Company Culture

Lots of diversity and culture

Support from management

Yes my manager worked hard

Teamwork

We all got along very well.

Freedom to work independently

My manager was at the store alot but when he wasn't he trusted us to do our job.

Internal Communication

I worked with my manager alot so I was always able to ask questions.

Gender Equality

I was treated fairly.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older employees were basically cut breaks and did not have to work as hard while getting paid just as much if not more.

Career Development

Not really, you could be there for years and someone who got there a month before you could get the promotion or they recruit someone from a different store.

Overall compensation for your work

Underpaid.

Office / Work Environment

All great except having to take the trash out and do outdoor chores in the rain or snow or stocking the cooler.

Environmental Friendliness

I don't recall seeing a recycling bin but we had a cigarette ashtray

Work-Life Balance

I really wanted morning shifts and I tried to get them for more than a year but was only granted them maybe twice a week.

Company Image

It was a temporary job, I don't think more people are happy with working at a gas station.

Job Security

They have a very high turnover rate

Handicapped Accessibility

Handicap parking

Workplace Safety

No. I am a 100 point pretty female who had to work Midnight's by myself several times and they would not allow me to lock the doors because we didn't have a window. This led to two altercations to where I had to involve the police

Challenging Work

It was very challenging, you are constantly moving and in a rush to get something done whether it's behind the counter, in the kitchen, on the floor or in the coolers.

Inclusive / Diverse

Tons of diversity.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Add walk up window for night shift . Employees need some type of discount but at the very least, free drinks during work shift!

What I like about the company

I made some good friends through co workers. I learned all of the ins and outs of working in a gas station .

What I dislike about the company

Employees get NO type of discount. We do not even get free drinks throughout the work shift. All stores MUST have walk up window for night shift workers!! From personal experience to ensure your employees safety it is a Must !!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Give the employees something to show you care a little bit even if it is just free fountain drinks while they work. Employee retention would improve if they actually gave more than 30cent raises once a year.

What I like about the company

Management was always helpful, friendly and caring. It was higher up leaders and executives that were the problem with making employees feel like the company did not care about them.

What I dislike about the company

Give the store more hour especially busy ones. During the busy hours they need more than just 3 people working in order to help customers and complete all other tasks that the company expects them to complete
